About Me

Head shot

Hello and welcome! My name is Sam, and I am a PhD candidate in astronomy & astrophysics at Vanderbilt University. Find my CV and contact info here.

My research-related interests span a wide range, but include high-performance computing, hydrodynamics, and general relativity. Fortunately for me, I found the perfect project to work on, core-collapse supernovae!

My non-research-related interests span an even wider range, but include cooking, being a dog dad to Daisy, Bo, and Penny, enjoying the outdoors, playing guitar, and traveling. I advocate for animal welfare, especially stopping animal cruelty, and also for massive prison reform in the US.
